"We definitely have some things to improve, but it was a good solid game for us", Duke head coach Joanne P. McCallie said after Thursday's game against the Demon Deacons. He missed most of the second half of the 1994-95 season after complications from another back operation.

O'Connell added only 1 point after halftime to finish with 13 points on 3-of-6 shooting.

Defense has been a problem for Wake all season. (13.3), Gary Trent Jr. He also filled in for his mentor for one game in 2015-16, a road victory at Georgia Tech after Krzyzewski missed the trip because of high blood pressure and dehydration.

"It was hard, because we need Doral in the game", said junior sixth man Keyshawn Woods. Whatever it was, Trent didn't let it affect him.

"Just have to play through it and get a win", he said. "That was the most important thing".

Alexis Sanchez could join Manchester City by weekend
There is no doubt that the player would earn an extremely large amount of money at the Etihad but there could be more to that. Alexis Sanchez didn't travel with the Arsenal squad to Bournemouth and won't feature in Sunday's Premier League match.

"To have somebody like that on your team, who's throwing up on the bench on the side, not feeling too good, to have somebody like that come out and still play the way he did and give everything he had, that's just unbelievable", Bagley said.

Now, Duke faces a quick turnaround with a game Monday night at No. 18 Miami, where the Blue Devils haven't won since 2014. Freshman guard Alex O'Connell, gave Duke its biggest spark. He finished with just two points, missing all eight field goals. The last time the Blue Devils dropped a game in the series at home was three years earlier in a blowout defeat to the then-no. Duke's bench still doesn't compare to other teams. Capel said after the game that he was unsure how close DeLaurier and Bolden are to returning. "We've got a tough one on Sunday, but they're all tough at this point". Allen hasn't shot well in Duke's conference games.

College players rarely get a realistic opportunity to lead their teams to a win against a conference foe for just the second or third time in their lifetimes. Meanwhile, touted freshman guard Chaundee Brown played 14 minutes, giving him an average of 3.7 points for the 11 games that he's played less than 20 minutes. The last time was March 8, 2017 in a game against Clemson. "We had some other guys that made a few more shots and made a few more plays, and that's sort of the direction that I chose to go". He played good on ball defense, found open players and rebounded the basketball well. He sank 2 of 3 3-point attempts and all four of his free throws in the first half, quickly establishing himself as a deep threat. Coming into the game, he was shooting 41 percent from behind the 3-point line. Defensively, Duke yields 73.9 points per game against the opposing teams.

"Any time we make shots on the perimeter it's big for us", Capel said. All of us have got to want to play defense and not just your man.

"That makes me just want to go harder, too, if I see my teammate fight for me like that and fight for the rest of us like that". Marvin Bagley III once again put on a show, with 30 points and 11 rebounds.
